Juventus Considering Summer Swoop for Sacha Boey

Juventus are bracing themselves for a busy summer following another underwhelming Serie A season, looking to reinforce multiple areas of their depleted squad. According to Tuttojuve, Galatasaray right-back Sacha Boey has made Massimiliano Allegri’s list of targets going into the summer transfer window.

Juan Cuadrado’s illustrious career in Turin is nearing its end. Juventus have failed to extend the Colombian’s expiring contract. Unless some major developments occur in the coming days, the 35-year-old should wave goodbye to the Allianz Stadium after six years. Since he’s been crucial to Allegri’s set-up, landing a new right-back is one of the priorities.

After a failed attempt to sign Real Madrid star Lucas Vasquez, Juventus have switched their focus toward Alvaro Odriozola. However, the Spaniard won’t be a viable solution, given his relatively sparse game time in La Liga last season. His decent season-long loan at Fiorentina in 2020/21 offers a silver lining. But the Bianconeri need someone better.

Their search for a new defender has brought Boey to Allegri’s attention. The 22-year-old has gone from strength to strength since swapping Dijon for Galatasaray in 2021. He managed 33 appearances for the reigning Turkish champions last season, chipping in with a goal and four assists. Yet, with his contract running out in 2025, he won’t come cheap.

On top of that, Juventus may have to overcome stiff competition in the shape of Premier League runners-up Arsenal. The Gunners harbor a long-standing interest in the French starlet as they look to replace injury-prone Takehiro Tomiyasu.

Should Juventus fail to sign Boey, taking Andrea Cambiaso back from an impressive loan stint at Bologna could be another option. Despite his young age, the Italian excelled in Serie A last season, helping Thiago Motta’s team secure another mid-table finish. 

Last but not least, Spezia’s Emil Holm could be a cost-effective signing for Juventus after Leonardo Semplici’s side failed to preserve their top-flight status in 2022/23.
